Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, and have over twenty-six years of behavioral health experience in a variety of diverse settings including public and private mental health clinics, schools, and hospitals.

Leigh is and always has been so supportive. She gives me the freedom to say anything and express my fears without judgment. She keeps my thinking grounded and puts it all back into perspective at a time when I'm completely overwhelmed by life. My video calls are time I look forward to every week to just purge the stress and express myself in a safe place.
